The rising popularity of fermented vegetable juices for their taste, nutritional benefits, and potential probiotic qualities has led to an increased focus on understanding and improving their production processes. Our project seeks to deepen the understanding of these processes and improve industrial production efficiency and quality.
To achieve this, we will develop a fermentor digital twins - virtual models that replicate the fermentation process - to predict the behavior of microbial communities in real-time. This approach involves mathematical modeling to forecast changes in the microbial community and metabolism, especially in response to environmental shifts.
The project involves a collaborative effort with several partners:
This project aims to set a new standard in fermented vegetable juices production, focusing on quality and efficiency, by integrating cutting-edge digital and microbial technologies.
